Many government and private security officials have identified incoming mail and packages as a vulnerability.  This risk was highlighted years ago by the tragic events shortly following 9/11 that claimed the lives of five individuals handling mail.  It was following these events that DualDraw broadened its product and service offerings to include mail screening.

DualDraw mail screening and Homeland Security products employ the same patented symmetrical airflow design used to protect the thousands of operators using our industrial air pollution control equipment.  Specialized detection instrumentation is then integrated into our standard cabinet design to provide operator awareness of hazardous items.  Instrumentation can be configured based on user preference to detect the presence of chemical, biological, and/or explosive threats that may be sent through the mail. Screening solutions are designed to be placed inside offices, mailrooms, entry screening checkpoints, and other secure inspection areas.  These Homeland Security products provide safety to operators through airflow protection of breathing zones and detection of some of the following:

• Chemicals – detects a wide range of Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA’s) and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TIC’s)
• Biohazards – systems will alert operators with a first tier alert when a biological agent is present such as Anthrax or Ricin
• Radiological – identifies radiation sources which are potentially hazardous, such as gamma and neutron radiation – potential signs of a “dirty” bomb
• Nuclear – identifies key radiological ingredients associated with a nuclear weapon
• Explosives – both commercial grade and homemade explosives can be detected using integrated trace detection technology

DualDraw mail screening services include full outsourced mail screening for the above CBRNE threats, risk assessments, and preventative maintenance services.  Our mail screening practices follow industry best practices, many of which are developed using US Federal Government standards, specifically 41 CFR 102.192§70-80. Our experience in handling potentially hazardous mail, conducting screening operations including X-ray screening, and sampling for CBRNE threats, is highly effective due to our intense focus on quality.  We ensure that quality and safety, not speed, dictate how we screen mail with our Homeland Security products.  We ensure that operating procedures, engineering controls, training programs, and quality control (QC) initiatives meet mission goals while sustaining a safe, secure work environment.

We set up all logistics management, supply sustainment, and services support functions.  Additionally, we provide a full range of program management and sustainment functions, including the provision of safety and security support programs; training for personnel; the collection, correlation, and dissemination of required data; and the issuing of deliverable reports as directed.  DualDraw provides continuous real-time feedback and recommendations regarding established SOPs and their relevance to current mail screening operations.

Our specific mail screening services and protocols are based on industry best practices combined with specific customer requirements, including procedures for receiving, sorting, screening, clearing, safeguarding, transporting, and delivering mail – as well as procedures for identifying, isolating, verifying, recording, and, when directed, disposing of threats.
